    I am considering buying this car from an acquaintance of mine. He bought the part which he said is the "master cylinder clutch" and is supposedly the one problem with the car. My concern is that it may be the clutch, he said that it will drive but can only be put in gear when the car is off, or if you come to a stop you will not be able to get it into gear again unless you shut the car off put it into gear and then able to drive again. Do you have any idea if he correctly diagnosed the problem?

    1st gear bucks after about 7 ft, 2nd gear does also unless you milk it. Had a new clutch put in. Still does the same thing but now only if car is been running maybe 20 mins or more. Mechanic wants me to ride the clutch through the two gears says thats how its supposed to be.

Did you bleed the system fully after changing the cylinders? Those are the two main components that cause such problems. If you bled the system out, and it still has the problem, then you most likely have a ruptured line somewhere that is allowing air into the system.

Where is my slave on a 89 240sx

It is on the side of your transmission! If it isnt leaking fluid anywhere, More than likely your clutch is worn out!

Clutch sticking will not go into first

Ok it looks like there is no problem with the clutch or tranmission. You problem is that the clutch pedal is stiff and sticking to the floor. This sometimes happens when vehicles sit for extended periods of time. It might free up by working back and forth by hand. Have the vehicle off and the parking brake applied and push the clutch pedal up and down with your hand, It might stick to the floor and you may have to pull it off the floor a few times. You can also get some spray lubricant from your local canadian tire or auto parts store. open the hood and have someone move the clutch pedal up and down and spray the moving parts. It might take a few times to free up the stiff linkage but it will work :)

My clutch goes to the floor and I cant shift into gear. I checked the fluid and it is fine. does this mean I have to replace the clutch? where is the cable? How would I fix this myself?

The cable may need to be replaced or adjusted. Or if it is a hydraulic clutch check the master and slave cylinders for leaks or defects. If you have a cable clutch you will see the cable on the drivers side firewall and you can follow it down to the fork at the transmission.

1993 240 nissan clutch pedal acts like it has no fluid

Check if the slave cylinder is being activated by the operation of the master cylinder (also ensure no fluid leaks are present).
If slave cylinder not moved, you still have a faulty master cylinder or slave cylinder - or the hydraulic system still has air.

If the slave cylinder is operating normally and there is still no return pressure from the clutch pressure plate, you have a faulty pressure plate or throughout lever mechanism.

The clutch pedal if touching the floor and it has a difficult time shifting to any gear!

its either the clutch master or the slave cylinder. Or maybe a leak in the fluid. Check for leaks and bleed it maybe theres air in the line
